    Re: Exhaust leaks

    I can't see it would cause any performance issues at all. There is, however, a danger to the driver from carbon monoxide leaks.

    Re: Bad Kitty

    I guess it would make sense to compare to an original V12 car:

    61196

    It's really a pretty mild customization of the original, except for those wheels. I think that's what I find offputting.

    Re: Front hub bearing grease repacking

    You're right, I should know better. (Hangs his head in shame) Unless you packed the hub to the gunwales, the grease would probably just stick in a blob to the outside of the hub, not even being in...

    Re: Front hub bearing grease repacking

    It's an 82 BMW 320i. I misstated. The instructions were not in the workshop manual but from an online how-to. I agree, I don't think it does anything and may cause more trouble than help.

    I laughed at that spelling, too. That lighter knob is so unusual that I couldn't believe it when I saw it show up on the BaT car. Reminds me of a 1995 Z/28 I had that had a "CHECK GAGES" light. ...
